Welcome Mark!

Glad to see you here.

I've already read the book and I think it is a great book for the beginner. I have been looking for a book for a long time that I can give to friends who either want to learn JavaScript or want to learn to program at all. I think your book is my new go-to on this one. I wish someone had put together something like this when I was first programming. The lessons flow into each other very well and they really stay focused on the point they are trying to make without importing any baggage. Well done.
